As you might have noticed in my previous posts, I’ve been working on a minion again (from the movie “Despicable Me”). I have been working roughly from the same pattern as before, but this time, I modified it for my own personal need: size.
My brother asked me if I could make him a big minion. When I asked him ‘how big’, he said: “however big you can make it.” Well, I did my best and though I could have made it a lot bigger if I wanted to, this looked like the right size for one.
So, without further ado, here’s the result!
Like the original pattern, you can remove his goggles and overalls, but this time, I didn’t sew on the gloves either. So you can basically take off all his clothes until you have a hairy jelly bean with arms ^_^’
Some close-ups of details:
When I made the last one, I didn’t like how the face came out. This time, I think the arms are slightly too long, but then again, I didn’t have the motivation to redo them, so that’s a lesson for next time (if I will ever do one this big again, that is!)
I have written down how I made him, but I don’t think I will post the pattern online, since it’s pretty much a redo of the original by AllAboutAmi. Basically, what I did was make the body, arms and overalls with mostly half double crochets instead of singles. Then, to get him even bigger, I added some extra rounds and kept increasing. If you want to get the pattern, you can contact me and I’ll try to get it to you.
